Regional Outreach at Corpus Christi

Corpus is linked with the following local authorities:

  • Manchester
  • Oldham
  • Salford
  • Stockport
  • Tameside
  • Trafford

We’re very keen to debunk popular myths about top universities such as Oxford. To do this, we encourage school visits to Corpus Christi and our Outreach and Admissions Team visits our link local authorities for talks and events, often in conjunction with Cambridge University.

Oxford for North West Seminar Series May/June 2022

Oxford for North West Seminar Series information

Are you a Year 12 state-school student? Are you from the North West, and interested in applying to Oxford? Then this Seminar Series is for you!

Oxford for North West are excited to announce a series of online webinars taking place throughout May and June 2022 to support state school Year 12 students from the North West. All seminars will take place on Zoom and are free to attend. There is no obligation to attend every session, so please choose those that most interest you. This series will be led of Oxford Outreach Officers and supported by Student Ambassadors, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and to gather information about whether Oxford would be the right university for you. 

17:00 to 18:00 Thursday 12th May: How to write a killer Personal Statement  
This seminar will provide a brief introduction to student life at Oxford, including the College system, the way we teach here, and what makes the Oxford application process different to some of those 
at other UK universities you may be considering. The main focus will be on helping you to start writing your Personal Statement. We’ll be sharing  tips and tricks to help you get started.
17:00 to 18:00 Thursday 19th May: Mental and Physical Health at Oxford

Moving to university can come with challenges, but at Oxford we are committed to supporting our students in making a comfortable transition from school to university. In this session we will be talking about the pastoral support available at Oxford for all students, and will be hearing about the specific forms of support available for students with disabilities, long term health difficulties, learning difficulties and mental health concerns. We’ll be asking for attendees to submit questions anonymously in advance if they wish. Parents, carers and supporters are also welcome to attend this session.
17:00 to 18:00 Thursday 26th May: Meet Our Students! 

When deciding which university you want to attend, it is so important to speak with current students if you can. Join this session for the chance to hear from a group of our friendly Student Ambassadors – all of whom are current Oxford undergraduates who come from the North-West – about their experiences studying at Oxford. Feel free to ask them all of your burning questions!
17:00 to 18:00 Wednesday 1st June: How to prepare for Open Days  

We are very excited that, after two years of online alternatives, the University of Oxford's Open Days will once again take place in person, on 29th and 30th June! If you are hoping to come and visit us, it’s sensible to plan your day in advance and think about what you want to prioritise. In this session we will be talking about how to best prepare for in-person Open Days and to make the most out of the experience.

To register for this Seminar series, please complete the sign-up form at least 24 hours in advance of the session you wish to attend. We will send Zoom links for each session on the day of the Seminar. We ask you kindly not to circulate these with anyone else so we can ensure that the Zoom Webinar is a safe space for prospective applicants and for our Outreach staff who will be supporting you.
